So how "smart" you want a "scanner" looks like? This device is NOT an ordinary phone to be compared with most other phones you buy in a phone shop.
Or else, how would you design this phone? A super tiny screen like those on I ? Music brand so when this "scanner" scans in over 20 items, the user has to scroll down many times to read the data?
Or do you think other "scanning devices" like those being used by UPS or FedEX are smarter looking than this?
If this device looks 10 years old, I think the one being used by UPS is 20 years old, that's what you should compare.
ok yes this is aimed for people who need a sturdy phone than can withstand tough conditions etc for work blah blah blah.
But stil that is no excuse for the poor design that would only appeal to a baby.
I mean who said that strong, sturdy phones can't also look good.
i'm sure people who need phones like this, would want one that looked as if it came out in the past 5 years.....not like 10 years ago lol
no wonder moto is stil declining after so long.
if someone gave me this piece of rubbish i'd prolly chuck it at a wall or something, as this seems to be one of the phones key features (shock resistance).....
moto fail fail fail
cce, 30 Mar 2009No Radio and 3G. luck of one thing Not Water proof lol!Just because your boss allows you to listen to radio at work, you need to respect others who can't...
This device is a WORK phone, doubt anyone would carry it during the weekends for FUN!

Really Motorola? Fire your design team and the upper management that approved this ... moreMoto will capture 100% market share of this phone's targeted segment, because NODODBY ELSE IS CAPABLE to make such INDUSTRIAL DEVICE.
Only fools would think they can buy one out of the stores where they buy other phones...
Really Motorola? Fire your design team and the upper management that approved this piece of crap. That's why you lost market share!!
As mentioned it seems to be all in one, But after proper launch we can comment well.
But overall a nice effort from Motorolla, like ever it did.
Woah, it's like, you mix extreme condition and phone at the same time.
TO THE EXTREEEEMEEEE....

Skv, 25 Mar 2009Sooo moto decided to combat phones like E75 and E55 with this outdated crap?! Get real moto, i... moreTo all of those who keep complaining about the design of this phone:
Really intersting to learn the fact many people who keep complaining about this phone seem like they CANNOT READ THE SPECS and FULLY UNDERSTAND the target market of this phone.
This phone is NOT designed to compete in the mass consumer market, so it CANNOT compete with the E-series of the almighty brand...or ANY other device with phone function from ANY OTHER BRAND at the moment, because NOBODY ELSE OTHER THAN MOTO knows how to make a PHONE which also READS UPC BARCODE and RFID's and others.
IF YOU DON'T know what RFID is, suggest you do some research and let me know if ANY OTHER PHONE from ANY OTHER BRAND has such capability.
This phone is designed for FLEET SALES and NOT the mass consumer market. Potential customers will likely buy more than one unit at a time....so which phone model out there can guarantee sales of at least 2 units per customer? (if people keep comparing grapes with steak, or pork chop if you like...the only thing in common is all are being FOOD!)
Sooo moto decided to combat phones like E75 and E55 with this outdated crap?! Get real moto, its REALLY time to step things up.
seems like phones are going back to the classics, just like cars...this phone must've been in the works since about 95 or so :p
what a waste of metal. couldn't they come up with something else lol. i had rather not have a phone than have this
Wow.. a rough phone, been a while since we had this kind of phones.. too bad its not 3G or i would have one, at least this will be the one living longer than the others ;p
